Default Man Of Steel vs Avengers: Age Of Ultron

Since we seem to be having all these vs threads. Let's take a look at these decisive films among the fan community and discuss strengths, weaknesses, script and wll everything. Let's keep it civil and no personal attacks. A good debate once in a while is healthy.

Well I agree they're watchable, but I find a lot of bad movies to be perfectly watchable. I can even enjoy some bad movies, and the MCU ones (namely the two you mentioned and TIH) certainly fall into that category. But at the end of the day, I still don't think they're good.

I prefer Aou over TA, because as a whole, the stakes feel more real, but it still lacks a real sense of threat imo.

People can say what they want about MoS, but the stakes are really high, and there is a sense of threat, you know people are dying, it feels real in that regard. People criticize the movie because of this, but it makes the final act stronger than both AoU and TA final act to me.

Agreed. I suppose that the stakes are similar in AoU (human extinction) but for some reason IMO it doesn't feel quite as threatening as Zod's plan - possibly because Zod is much more monomaniacal than Ultron, whose actual motivations and plan weren't completely clear. With Zod there was no ambiguity at all.

I actually approved of all the destruction and casualties because it was a pretty accurate representation of what would happen if Superman got into a fight in a populated area -which wasn't his choice. I thought it was ballsy, rather than just Michael Bay-esque destruction for destruction's sake. But that's just me.

Careful... You're just inviting a certain poster to come in here and remind us all that it's mathematically impossible to like MOS and dislike the Transformers movies.

Depends if you're going with quality, style or proximity to other comic book movies.

The probably easiest one would be Ant-Man vs. Fantastic Four.

Ant-Man seems to be getting decent reviews. IGN 8.7, Coming Soon 7.0. Positive Reviews from the Hollywood Reporter and Variety.

It appears that as of right now that it might be a good not necessarily great movie so maybe somewhere between CA: TFA, Thor and IM3.

Thor ain't a good but not necessarily great movie. It's crap.

I guess I reserve the word crap for movies like GL, B&R, X:WO, etc.

Not for a movie that is like 77% on RT.

I don't use Rt as a reference to know if a movie is crap to me. I just judge it myself.
I was bored to hell by Thor, and there wasn't anything interesting in it imo.

Green Lantern is a historical failure, so at least, it's memorable. Batman and Robin is a ton of fun, and it's never boring.

Even X:WO is never as boring as Thor.

None of those movies are good. But none of them is boring the way Thor is.

Also, Batman and Robin, as flawed as it is, is full of visuals ideas and it has an identity. You canw atch it with friends and be entertained. wether, when I watched Thor 2 with my best friend, he asked me what did he do to deserve this kind of punishment. (Thor 2 is even worse than Thor 1. Let's hope the character finally gets his due with Thor 3).

Everyone has their own tastes and opinions and that's fine but in terms of general consensus, Thor is considered good and the others are not.

And yet, the general consensus can't dictate one's taste. does the general consensus matter that much really?

People love/hate movies that are critically praised or panned.

But arguing quality of a film on a messageboard, yeah it somewhat does.

I understand your point, even though that's not my line of thinking.

I don't care about what critics think of a movie, really. It has no bearing on my opinion. I do think some people pretend they don't care but judge accordingly though.

Yep. If you're part of the best then you're bigger target for hate.

You should read the stuff the Bat folk are saying about Avengers in the batman 89 thread. Holy moly.

You're certainly entitled to that opinion, but it's surely a minority opinion.

I liked the first Thor but the second one was a waste of time. I hope the third is better. This may be a minority opinion, but I think MOS and AOU were better than both of them.

I put Thor on a similar (just slightly higher) level to MoS
thought Goldilocks' first outing had more charm and a million times better villain than the somber affair that is Man of Steel
MoS just gets points for visual flair

but
Thor> TDW
MoS> TDW
Thor> MoS
AoU> Thor, MoS, and Thor:TDW

...and then TDK, Avengers, and Cap:TWS beat them all to a bloody pulp
